Sony FS100 Lens Adapter Rig Video

Sony FS100 Lens Adapter Rig Video LaunchBack at NAB we introduced our FS100 Lens Adapter Rig – a system that allows for swapping out lens mounts to accommodate for 8 different lens types. The passive adapters (meaning they don’t have the chip set necessary for communication with lenses so you’ll want to use manual aperture glass) come in a variety of flavors, including Canon EF, Canon FD, Nikon, Pentax K, Pentax M42, Minolta MD, OCT19 and PL.

We just released the launch video which showcases a couple of the lens mounts as well as the variations the rig is available in.

The first rig is the basic FS100 Lens Adapter Kit which includes the top and bottom cheese plates and the lens mount. The second rig is the FS100 Lens Adapter Kit with Rails which includes the cheese plates, lens adapter and a 30cm long rails kit. You’ll also notice SmallHD’s DP.4 EVF which isn’t included but will be available as an option in the near future, as well as our new and coming soon Shoulder Mount and stackable counterweights. The final rig is the cinema rig or FS100 Lens Adapter Rig, which features the cheese plates, lens mount, rails, Durus Follow Focus and Titan Swing-Away Mattebox.

      We do have an EF/eos mount, but it doesn’t carry over the sensor data for aperture or focus control so it would only work on older/manual canon lenses.
